Synopsis

An epic drama on cross-cultural marriages between Thai women and Danish fishermen, directed by Janus Metz (Armadillo, True Detective, Borg Vs Mc Enroe). Over a decade the director follows four couples as they struggle to find a way out of poverty and loneliness and see their children grow up to heap the seeds or pay the price of their mothers choices. A different kind of love story.
